As announced last year* and after a longer period of testing, QT in version 4 
and 3 was moved to [extra].

At least until the final release of KDE4 there are plenty of packages which 
still use version 3 of QT. Therefore a new package called qt3 was introduced.

The dependencies of all packages are updated according to this change. The 
update should be quite smooth. Pacman only notfies about replacing qt by qt3 
and qt4 by qt.

If you don't want to have qt-4 installed just remove it with "pacman -Rc qt" 
after the update.

If you are using any third party repositories like KDEmod please wait until 
they have updated their packages, too. Do not force any updates!

If there are still any issues, please report them at
